This chapter examines China, specifically Shanghai, as it is used as a case study to illustrate the impact of both central government and local government policies on the dignity of unemployed workers. Shanghai is considered as the most economically developed province in China, and has been successful in attracting many foreign investments. It shows that Shanghai was the first province to establish three social protection measures; this makes the case of Shanghai directly reflect current and future Chinese welfare policies.

Keywords:   China, Shanghai, central government, local government policies, impact, social protection measures, Chinese welfare policies
